This tea is one of Mr. He's special projects, carefully crafted with hand-picked smaller buds and oxidized in the sun over three days. The Autumn 2016 harvest is precious: with the particularly cold & harsh winter this year, the He Family lost about one third of their tea. These plants spent the summer recovering, and despite the lower yields still this fall, the He family has dedicated an early portion of the harvest to this labor intensive small bud black tea. The result this season is very light and delicate, with long lingering sweetness. The fall harvest has an almost milky or malted milk profile, with a much more mellow version of Laoshan Black's classic chocolate notes.
